Looks like a baby blacksnake...

Yeah. We have a lot of the rat snake family running around our house. We have a lot of little constrictors that eat crickets, too.

Welcome back to LJ! (I re-friended you, too.)

sounds like a Northern Red-bellied Snake.

While that would be cool (they eat slugs!), I don't think so. The photo/description doesn't match, and this site says that they are nocturnal. http://www.dgif.virginia.gov/wildlife/information/?s=030042

I just had a limited photo to go from. The photo from DGIF is of an adult with fully developed markings. But I agree on closer inspection it does not appear to be the same critter.
